Agriculture and Dairy
Silicone rubber is used extensively in agriculture.
It is particularly important in the Dairy Industry, where demands for higher standards of quality and improved yields has seen silicone rubber products replace organic rubbers across a wide range of applications.
Silicone rubber’s high strength and resilience properties make it an ideal material for use in products exposed to the elements and subjected to harsh treatment.
The dairy industry demands a very specific type of tubing. It must be highly flexible, resilient and reliable, and also have the hygiene properties to satisfy international food standards.
Silicone Engineering has over 25 years’ experience in producing tubing for the dairy industry.
All silicone tubing has been perfected so that is easy to install, maintain and replace.
Other applications of silicone in this sector include cow mats, milking liners, air hoses and machine seals and gaskets.
Silicone Engineering has developed an anti-microbial silicone called neutraSil™ that actively prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.
Products made from neutraSil™ are raising the standards of safety across the industry.
